2013 - Melting the year away

Another end to a year and for some it was a bad one
and for others it was a great year. Every new year is a chance
to reinvent ourselves and make it a resolution. And every year,
I have a list of things I would love to change and every time it seems 
impossible but this year I will try harder :D

Life is full of surprises and a roller coaster of ups and downs,
Sometimes for me there are more downs than ups lol but 
thankfully we get right back and up, and never for once
loose our smiles, we don't give up because life is worthwhile.
So don't ever give up, life can be hard but there's a light at
The end of the tunnel, always.

May the New Year bring lots of blessings, love and happiness...
And lots of cash!! Lol well you need money to survive.

See a penny, pick it up and all day you'll have good luck! 
Blah...blah...blah...who wants a penny?


New Year's Resolutions:

1. To get fit & healthy
2. Go to a spa or yoga, stress released
3. Get a full medical check-up
4. Go places, travel a little :)
5. Head over to manhattan more often
6. Make music digitally
7. Get a new look, need one bad
8. To stop having sugar
9. To stop wearing black
10. To get a new Mac
11. To paint more and stop procrastinating and last one but most important
12.  To stop worrying about all above and be panic-free   : D

Cheers to all and to all an awesome year!!!

Here us my New Year's Eve playlist:





And even though there was a lot of drama about crazy
Miley Cyrus, this song is one of her best songs 
And I'm all about the lyrics in a song



My favorite song and video One Republic "Counting Stars" best lyrics


Happy New Year Everyone!!!

Love is the answer X O

The special valentine rituals

card + gift + dinner + movie
dinner + card + gift + dancing
dinner + card + spend the night in

whichever order sounds like a winner,
and luckily everyone had a great time.
Valentine only comes once a year
and it's a day for love, so why not
enjoy it by being extra special to
each other because L O V E is the answer
and without love, we are empty,
like plants without water.
So love and be loved, you are a
special someone to someone

Below are some of my Valentine quick creations
using clay and paint. (before and after)

Special Time, Special Place

Well it has been quite a ride this winter, with the weather's
ups and downs, warm and cold days.  It seems like the snow
wanted to get us but it passed us by and according to the
groundhog we have six more weeks til the first day of spring.
It's like he's the country's psychic  : D  let me think what else
can I ask him, will i travel this year?

During my escapes from cabin fever, fortunately I was
introduced to a very cozy pretty place, that you can indulge
yourself with unique beautiful gifts.  If I told you that
once you go in, you will fall in love with the way it's
decorated inside, and the service is exceptional, friendly
people, you don't see that anywhere. You've got to check
this place for yourself.  You can find this store in
Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, NY.

Take a look at their site myfavoriteplaceltd.com/




















 below it's me enjoying a cold crispy day
 at Cold Spring Harbor.

























This is me after I got my first cold of the year,
I have been home sick for weeks
but feeling better now and hope
to have a Valentine's post soon.

Please, share any of your favorite places :)

The Christmas Owls

Made of Clay


Here is a simple christmas project that makes everybody
feel happy with the results. Working with clay is great,
some come in many colors and others are plain but you
can paint over when finished. These little owls can be
christmas ornaments, party decorations and even used
as jewelry charms

Quick and easy process:
(be playful with the colors)


















 


 

 
Aren't these cute? the one in the middle resembles me a lot :) These little owls
are going to decorate my christmas tree this year. The lights are bright and so are
these little ones.
 
 
 Enjoy creating :)

Sharing the Spirit of Christmas







































It's Christmas time again and the lights are up and the tree is in.
This year, the feeling of christmas is more about being together
and being happy.  These couple of months have showed us that
material things come and go, but the motive to stay happy and
be together as a family is much more sacred.

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
~Ada Hendricks



It has become a ritual for us every christmas to run
a train layout under the christmas tree. It is a very
exciting time and we love it.  Here are some pictures
from this year's train layout my bf worked on, he is
really talented and a freak for perfection.


 

A tunnel in progress


An almost finished project, next step will be
adding nature (plants and trees) will post pics later
 

On this picture above, he created rocks made
of plaster and harmoniously painted them.
 
Here are the rocks done and pasted on to the top of the tunnel
This is going to be one of the many awesome train layouts,
I will definately post a video of this ART form in progress.
And now to my Arts and Crafts

A wooden Christmas tree, handpainted,
the nice patt of this, you can add xmas lights to it.
And my paper christmas tree, also handpainted.
I added festive christmas lights stick-ons,
it's the easiest craft anyone can do.
This is an easy project, this christmas make your own
ornaments, made of clay,  just punch a hole and
put a string on it, done!
This is my favorite one, creating a snowman and
my own shaped christmas tree (shown behind)
these are also made of air dry clay, next step
will be painting it. (will post pics when finished)
 
Cherish the holidays creating : )
and
Be Merry!

House Music People







































My True Obssesion: House Music
 
How do you explain this feeling, absolutely
numbness in my ears, my eyes are hypnotized
and my body full of goosebumps.
 
The energy it brings to my body from my head
to my toes, it's vibrating thru me and just a few
seconds later, I'm dancing  :) 
 
 
I guess I'm either  feeling good or I'm being extra crazy LOL
either way,  Djs know what I'm talking about...I hope.
